Summer Peach and Turquoise | Color Palette

Peach Nectarine Mint and Turquoise Color Palette by DelphineThe other day my son and I had a summer snack of local South Carolina peaches and nectarines still warm from the sun, with homemade biscuits fresh from the oven. Yummy.

I couldn’t help but to snap a picture. The pretty combo of the sun faded orange, turquoise and green colors together made me smile.

Haute off the Press | Charleston Stitch Letterpress Invitation in Keylime Green

charleston stitch letterpress wedding invitation in keylime green and grayCharleston Stitch is an invitation design near and dear to my heart. I designed at the request of Martha Stewart Weddings magazine (my all time favorite magazine … I’ve been a fan since the very first issue), with my once and again hometown of Charleston as the inspiration. This example is shown letterpressed in gorgeous keylime and champagne inks on thick off-white 100 percent cotton paper.

Hand Lettered Vintage Signage around Charleston

hand lettered vintage pawn shop sign in charleston south carolina scI’m (re)settling into Charleston. The other day a lady told me she was happy to hear that I design stationery because she is hosting a Geechee Supper for her Ya Yas and wants to gift correspondence to one of them who is having a birthday. I totally understood what she was saying without a translator! Also, a few weeks ago I had my first honk – n – wave from a friend driving by, I’ve become a regular at a coffee shop, and last night I sat next to someone I know at the movie theater completely by accident.

One of the things I really adore about this beautiful city is all the wonderful hand lettered signage. I’m not sure how much longer this beauty, from a now closed pawn shop on Upper King Street, is going to be around.

Haute off the Press: Citron, Champagne and Kraft Floral Julian Wedding Invitation

floral julian wedding invitation in citron and champagne ink with kraft envelopeOoooh, these are two of my very favorite color combos! Wedding invitations printed in citron ink paired with champagne … and rustic chic kraft envelopes printed with metallic champagne ink. J’adore, as Mémé Delphine would say. The design, Julian, was named after pretty California wildflowers spotted in the Julian mountain area, and I think it’s a great choice for a garden wedding.

Moretti Polenta | Nice Package

Moretti Polenta Package DesignIt’s too hot to stand over a stove stirring Polenta right now, which is the only reason I didn’t scoop up a package of Moretti when I was at the grocery store the other day. The packaging is delightful that I can pretty much guarantee my kid would eat this if he saw the package first.
